BIOPEST in Canola: Aphid Control Trial Results

BIOPEST in Canola

Use the following resources to find out more about using BIOPEST to control aphids in canola.

 SACOA’s research has demonstrated two critical requirements:

  • Effective Aphid Control: BIOPEST’s control of Cabbage/Turnip Aphid and Green Peach Aphid (GPA).
  • Safe Mixing and Effective Adjuvant: BIOPEST can be combined with scheduled sprays to deliver effective aphid control or antifeed whilst maintaining the primary active’s efficacy and not contributing any phytotoxicity.
